Wheeler and Woolsey work wonders in this wacky WWI comedy. The dialog is snappy and amusing. A few of the scenes border on the brilliantly surreal- i.e - Olga stripping down Gilbert. The battlefield scene had me scratching my head right up to the punchline. Very happy I found this!

Oh Captain how d'ya guess?
Enjoyable. Young Hollywood, Radio Pictures, when things were well-made. A lot of Vaudeville-style comedy, song, dance. The women are fiesty, the men are a couple of Romeos turned heroes, the jokes over the top. If you're a history buff you'll like this. The WW1 scenes are pretty realistic. If you're an Edna May Oliver fan (the general's wife; caricaturized a lot in Loony Tunes cartoons, solid acting in Dicken's movies)you'll like this. An hour well spent.

The comedy team and the leading ladies are good.
Not a laugh a minute comedy but has its moments.
